10 Most Popular K-12 Campus Safety Stories of 2020

Check out 2020’s most-read Campus Safety articles that focus primarily on K-12 campus security.

10 Most Popular K-12 Campus Safety Stories of 2020

Since April, Campus Safety has done a round-up of the most popular stories from each month. The majority of these articles focused on current events that have significantly affected the world of campus safety and security, including calls to defund police, protests of racial injustice and police brutality, and the coronavirus pandemic.

While it is important and necessary to keep informed on these current events, many Campus Safety articles that did not focus on these topics may not have gotten the attention they normally would.

Like previous years, we went into our Google Analytics and compiled the most read articles from 2020 into an easily digestible slideshow that includes a preview of each piece of content and a link to the full story.

However, this year, we are only including top educational articles that focus on actionable items and leading practices since many of the topics may have been put on the backburner by some K-12 campuses to primarily focus on current events.

From interactive tabletop exercises and student mental health to new Title IX rules and FERPA laws, 2020 is definitely a year we can learn from, even beyond the changes brought on by the pandemic.

There is no doubt this has been a challenging year for everyone — including campus security professionals — but we are hopeful that the organizational infrastructures put into place as a result will better prepare schools for future health and social crises.
